Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Was at Hafis - about 50 people in line upon opening. No obvious mules from my vantage point - quite a few couples picking up the beer. Lineup was still going out the door when I left at 12:40. As an aside: I'm sure the 2 warehouses across the street really appreciated the few cars that blocked their...

Re: Did Bellwoods go too far with PG

I'm loving the Guava Milkshark. If anyone was disappointed by this beer for whatever reason and is looking to offload their investment I'll take them off your hands for you.

Re: Spearhead Brewing Company

Interesting. Are they still jawboning other breweries/brewers while talking up their own products?

Re: Thoughts on the Wicked Weed news?

I was a fan of theirs but I have no real reason to seek out their stuff now. That's more because I can get better beer with less effort, and for less money.

The backlash on this is pretty extreme - akin to Bellwoods getting bought by Labbatt.

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I’d be happy to have a few of you bt-ers up to the brewery this week after work on Thursday. I'll open up a few bottles of Invictus and maybe a few others for you to enjoy. Feel free to email me if you are interested. Also, if you have any questions on the development of this brew, my brewery and/o...

Re: Market Brewing Company

Cute packaging for sure, but I'm more interested in if the beer is actually any good.

Close enough to my house so I'll probably stop by at some point.

SOLD!! :wink:

All seriousness, I wish them luck and I'll probably try things once since they're not too far from home, but my expectations are tempered somewhat.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Milkshark is probably going to get all the thunder, but Runes is the way to go.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Grabbed a 4 pack this AM at 401 and Weston. They mentioned it was "scanning wrong" (My guess is they've been given some instructions regarding scanning each bottle individually) but they were starting to clear shelf space for it. I really like KBS but I don't see any real reason go all #ne...

Re: Vermont

Late to the party on this one, but in the beer wasteland that is Clinton County and Franklin County Plattsburgh has a couple stops - both in Plattsburgh. OVAL and Valcour are decent enough but will probably be a letdown from all the better VT breweries. I'd skip Lake Placid and Plattsburgh Beer Co. ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

My main reason for choosing them (never made it to bissell or some others) was because they were the only place open a bit later on a Monday night....lots of breweries were closed on Mondays. If you ever want disappointment (or at least to have your options reduced considerably), try vacationing in...
